What is a Domain Name System?

A domain name system is a distributed system that internet servers follow to convert alphabetical domain names into numerical IP addresses. Internet servers follow a numerical IP addresses system, and to remember the numerical values of many domains is a difficult task, so domains use alphabetical address. Every time user types in an alphabetical domain name, the DNS helps internet by converting the alphabetical domain name into a numerical IP address.
